\s >>> tension at sea. japan's defense minister says chinese navy crews locked their radar on a japanese destroyer on international waters. welcome to nhk world "newsline." japanese government officials have launched a protest with chinese authorities over a potentially dangerous incident at sea. they say crews on a frigate locked their weapons radar on a japan self-defense force destroyer. they say it happened in the east china sea near islands both countries claim. >> translator: using this kind of radar, known as weapons radar, is an extremely unusual act. the japanese government believes that the situation could have become extremely dangerous. >> the defense minister revealed the incident happened on the morning on january 30th. the vessels were about three kilometers apart. he also says government analysts are investigating a separate incident from earlier in january. they suspect a chinese navy frigate locked its weapons radar on a self-defense force helicopter. japan and china have been locked in a dispute over the senkaku islands. the territory is in a area potenti
. bonji ohara is a former navy captain with japan's self-defense forces. he says the chinese sent a clear message. >> it is a serious thing. if the radar is the fire-control radar, can control the weapon, usually a battlhipas that kind of radar, one is searching radar, for navigation. one is for the targeting, control weapon radar. this is the fc radar. this time chinese side used this fc radar. it means they showed to the ship they have the intention to attack the japanese ship. so it is very serious and danger. i think the -- there are two ssib scenarios one is the chinese navy just wanted to provoke the ship. one another is the chinese navy recognized the japanese ship's behavior, action was danger, so they wanted to warn the japanese ship. but in both scenario there is a perception gap. i think this perception gap is the most important we have to consider. both japan and china have to resolve the problem. because the -- these kind of perception gap will lead to similar situation even in future. so i think this time the japanese government will open this information, claim to chinese s
incident involving china's navy and japan's maritime self-defense force. the crew on board a chinese frigate locked their weapon's radar on a japanese destroyer in the east china sea. now, nhk sources reveal it happened 100 kilometers, or what they consider a long way from islands both countries claim. officials with japan's defense ministry say the chinese frigate locked the weapons radar on the sdf destroyer ship a week ago. the ships were reportedly 3 kilometers apart. the officials say crews on a different chinese frigate locked their weapons radar on a japanese helicopter on another destroyer earlier in january. the frigate was reportedly a few kilometers away. these incidents are getting a lot of attention because the two countries are at odds over the senkaku islands. japan controls the territory. china and taiwan claim it. japan coast guard patrol ships monitor the islands. chinese surveillance vessels have navigated in and out of japanese waters around the territory for months, but the chinese navy has not. analysts say the fact that the most recent radar incident happened f
-defense navy captain gave us his take on what china's denial means moving forward. >> japanese leaders should be happy because chinese defense officials deny using fire-control radar which can direct missiles. this shows china agrees with japan that using the type of radar is potentially dangerous. admitting to use fire-control radar would have invited international criticism, proving exactly what happened in the east china sea in january has turned out to be difficult. japanese defense analysts spent a week going over electronic data. in the end they concluded that chinese navy did use weapons radar. they can prove the radar came from a chinese ship but they cannot prove without a doubt where the destroyer was when the radar locked on happened or even when it happened. it's possible to damp with this kind of data that's why chinese officials say japanese got it wrong. what can we take from the outcome of this instance is that chinese leaders will likely prohibit the military from using weapons radar from now on. but they cannot stop all of aggressive behavior towards japan. communist party l

position the bottom of a strategically important chain of islands that could block the chinese navy from the east china sea. they have been a source of daily confrontations on the sea and now in the air between japan and china. you have two new administrations, one in china, one in japan. there is a hardening of positions on both sides. there's the usual diplomatic feelers, but i haven't talked to anyone who takes them marley seriously. and we are -- particularly seriously. and we are one ep3 incident away from potentially a major conflict. do i think it'd be a war? no. on the other hand, the domestic tensions in both countries, i think, mean this would not be very easy to solve. and whoever backs down either before conflict or after conflict is going to lose an enormous amount of credibility and influence in the region. both sides know that, and that's why they are now moving forward to getting much closer to war. the third thing is managing this broader china relationship, and here's where i'll link it back to what dani said and wrap up my comments. this is the long game. i think that

between china and japan. it was revealed that the chinese vessel had lot weapons on the japanese navy. i want to hear how much you think an issue this was. >> i was just in that part of the world in the last few months. i had a chance to go to japan and visit with my counterparts in japan and discuss their concerns and then i went on to china to talk with them about their concerns as well. i believe that, especially the secaucus islands and the dispute over that, that territorial dispute, is one that concerns as -- us a great deal. it is the kind of situation where their territorial claims that could ultimately get out of hand and one country or the other could react in a way that could create an even greater crisis. we urge, obviously, both the chinese and the japanese to exercise good judgment. in the pacific, this is a big region. part of our reason to rebalance to the pacific is because we think that, in many ways, our future economic security, our trade relationships, our security relationships will be in that part of the world. and we have great allies in japan and south korea and
, the army, knave v navy marines, they don't move that fast. i don't think you should look at this issue in a way to be able to make money off of it, though. it's really not a needle-mover. as a matter of fact, it can be negative for a lot of the defense companies as we know and they've been under a cloud because of these cuts. here's one from danny in new york. hi, jim, i have heard you say when considering playing the downside of an equity you would short the stock rather than buy a put. please elaborate on your reasoning on this. danny, i'm so glad you sent me this because if i have created any misperception that i favor shorting stocks, it is completely out of character with all my books and what i used to do at my hedge fund or before i had my hedge fund when i was working for goldman sachs or trading for myself. i always do puts. i very rarely do shorts because as i write in "confessions of a street addict," i was a victim of horrible short squeezes that lost me a ton of money. use puts, i don't care if there's a premium. let's go to some tweets. here's one. covered calls allow me
